The Centre for International Heritage Activities (CIE) is an independent, non-profit organization for international knowledge exchange about the heritage of the European expansion and international heritage cooperation. The CIE is involved in the management of international heritage programmes and stimulates academic research on the heritage of the European expansion.


Organisation information

Additional information The CIE focus is on international cooperation in the field of cultural heritage. This area is strongly developed in the Netherlands, which is illustrated by the number of museums, an extensively developed range of archival institutions, numerous private organisations, governmental institutions, as well as NGO’s in the field of conservation of built heritage. A network of intermediate vocational education (MBO), higher vocational education (HBO), and academic educational institutes relating to heritage in the Netherlands form its important backbone. Internationally, there also is a demand for such expertise, especially from countries with which the Netherlands has a historical connection from its colonial period, but also from many developing countries.

There has been international collaboration in the heritage field for decades. This, however, took place incidentally, and was carried out by institutions whose core task lies within the Netherlands heritage work. The CIE is the sole institute with international heritage management as its main task. Since 2010, the CIE has focused on becoming a more international organisation instead of a Dutch organisation.

The aim of the CIE is to make this international collaboration open to the public, the heritage field, and the governments as well as to stimulate further cooperation and professionalism. To work inclusively and not in competition is a key value of the CIE. The CIE concentrates on the development of academic frameworks. The main goal of those academic frameworks is to extend the scholarly knowledge, to create an interface between theory and practice and to facilitate awareness and debate. The activities will break down in explicit academic programmes and contributions to the practical project and programmes currently implemented by the CIE.
